City Lullably by Al Scorch      

Standard Tuning  

Capo 4: All chords relative to capo.

[Intro]
C Am G F

[Verse 1]
C
Every single day is a ballet in the streets
         Am     
and everyone's a dancer light and lively on their feet
G                                                                               F       
twinkle toes all stand in rows where roads and sidewalks meet and then they leap,        
C
how they leap!
C
To symphonies of crashes all brash and harsh and loud, they make the
      Am        
the city seems a place where sleeping simply ain't allowed,
        G
And when the day is over and those heads are hanging down, 
              G
eyelids heavy all around, dreams falling from the clouds, 
        F                              C
you hear a most peaceful and beautiful sound
        Dm           Am
as the city heaves a sigh
E                               F
hear it start to softly sing itself that concrete lullaby, 
              C         G            C
and it's: sleep little city do not cry.

[Bridge] 
C  Dm  E  Am  F  C  G  C

[Verse 2]
C
Glass and concrete canyons, never abandoned
    Am  
all gleaming with the lights of those who live the light demanding
G                                                                  F
when the electric lights drive off the night they are still standing strong
             C
weary and strong
        C
and now feet pound on the ground downtown and rhythm of that step
        Am
is the living city's heartbeat and the breath inside its heaving chest
G
when the sun again sinks below buildings in the west, 
G
we cease our work and seek our peace 
                                  F                                     C
our solemn souls to rest, in the comforting cradle of the city's sooted breast.
                 Dm         Am  
And feel the city heave a sigh, 
E                            Am
hear it start to softly sing itself that concrete lullaby, 
          C           G            C
and it's sweet little city do not cry.

[Bridge and finish]
C  Dm  E  Am  F  C  G  C
